Why, you ask?
Well, look what I got in the mail yesterday!!!
My wool sampler. The picture does not even come close to doing justice to how pretty the blues are. We’ve got Swish DK in Tidepool Heather, Swish Worsted in Marine Heather (my personal favorite), Merino Style in Dusk, and Swish Bulky in Marlin. Plus a pattern to go with each skein so that I can see how they knit up. Genius idea!
Next, we have the book I picked, Continuous Cables by Melissa Leapman. I saw this book highlighted on a blog (forgive me, I can’t remember which one) and I’ve wanted it ever since. I love the patterns, I love the complexity, I just love the book. And, as a bonus, there is a cable dictionary in the back filled with a plethora of different cabels you can add to your own pattern! I love that!
But, of course, what I was really waiting for it the needles!!!!! The Harmony Options set is so beautiful! It comes with needle tips size 4-11 and two each of 24′ and 32′ cables. It also came with a little bag to carry in all in, 8 end caps, 2 keys, and a vinyl case for the cables. I love, love LOVE it!!! I can’t wait to use them.
I can’t get over how generous Knitpicks was to offer such a great prize for their contest! And, since the second place person came in a mere 9 minutes after me, they gave her a wool yarn sampler too! How awesome is that!
I’m telling ya, Knitpicks has a customer for life!!!
